Where abouts in New Hampshire? It's a pretty geographically diverse state! Do you like hiking? Eating? Drinking? Site seeing?

Coming from Iceland, you should probably pack your swim trunks . . .

If going to Indy stop at the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana. It would be on the way..... With a heads up I could try and arrange a tour for you..

Unfortunately early Nov. would be between the Auto Road closing and before the SnowCoach starts running. The COG Railway up to the top of the mountain is really cool and runs limited hours through December.

Portsmouth is a great little port city with an active commercial waterfront with lots of bars, restaurants and museums (check ahead for museum hours, some close for the winter).

If you get an ugly welcome at the US border, don't take it personally:
Why I will never return to the USA - Niels Gerson Lohman

Low-level American Government employees are really that fawking stupid and impolite. Most intelligent Americans consider them an embarrassment and a curse.

Hard to really see much in only a few days unfortunately. Still if you are selective and have any special interests a few things are possible.

New Hampshire is not a heavily populated area in my opinion so getting from point A to point B is not hard if you have a car. Public transportation outside a few cities is probably very thin. I am a Canadian and have enjoyed that state.

There state motto is live free or die. Still when visiting there I paid for everything. Must have been them recognizing me as an outsider I suppose. Actually that is all in jest. Of course live free or die it is just a political motto or statement. Enjoy your visit.

I went to the Maine HOG Rally out in Bethel Maine in August 1996. On the way home we rode over to Mt. Washington. The sign in the Ranger shack across the road listed conditions at the summit: Wind 75 MPH; Temp: 32 deg f. Road Closed! So, instead I rode off to Dixville Notch & up into Canada, had lunch in Magog (sp?), rode around for a while & came back in North Troy VT around 6:00pm

Great day of riding on my 1991 Sportster.
